Classic comedy from the 19th century gets a postmodern makeover
The Victorian equivalent of an everyday Joe's blog, The Diary Of A Nobody chronicles the unwarranted self-importance of Charles Pooter. Written by the Grossmiths, it's both genuinely hilarious and clever. The King's Head Theatre welcomes the return of this production – a sell-out in the summer – with four actors taking on 45 roles. As faux pas lead to social disasters, you can't help but realise there's a little bit of Pooter in us all. Please note, latecomers may not be admitted.
"Humorously inventive and wonderfully imagined."
